Perfect Family Break Away
Cape South was a stunning place for our family 'mini break' away to attend the Elton John Mission Estate Concert. The lovely photos don't do the property justice, it just blew our minds form the minute we arrived. Even the drive from Napier was through gorgeous scenery in a little pocket of NZ we had never explored before. The sleeping accommodation with 6 bedrooms, each with an en-suite, suited our extended family perfectly. The living areas are extensive and beautifully furnished and meant everyone could find a cosy corner to read and relax if needed. The gardens and pool area are beautiful, well maintained and perfect for swimming, walks and afternoon/evening drinks and relaxation.
Stunning villa in a quiet and peaceful location
We spent a extended weekend at Cape South with 5 other couples. The house is fairly isolated, approx. 25 minutes drive to shops. We fell in love with the villa, with its large rooms and stunning views. The rooms all have their own bathrooms which made the stay all the more enjoyable. The underfloor heating kept the house warm and cozy with us only lighting the fires to enjoy the atmosphere. The facilities are great and everything (except food) is provided. Would highly recommend to anyone considering a peaceful getaway.
Cozy Massages at Cape South
My husband and I were traveling through Hawke's Bay on our two-week honeymoon in New Zealand. When planning our itinerary, we left one day "Open" in Hawke's Bay in order to get some R&R in an otherwise busy itinerary. When we arrived in Napier, we realized that it was going to be raining on our one free day, so decided to book a couple's massage. The hostess of our B&B recommended Cape South as a new, holistic retreat with great services on a beautiful property. We called Cape South immediately, hoping they could accommodate a last minute booking, and they were extremely helpful. Although, their usual massage therapist was on holiday, they were able to find two therapists that were available to come in the very next day. When we arrived, we got a tour of the property. Although it was raining, it was absolutely stunning. We enjoyed homemade tea made with herbs from the garden and took in the view. When our massage therapists were ready, we wandered down to the treatment room, which was in a beautiful room with floor to ceiling windows overlooking Hawke's Bay. The massage therapists spent about 10 minutes with us discussing our ailments, their technique and how they could best treat us. Both of our treatments were excellent, very relaxing, and very technical. We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent at Cape South and would definitely consider staying here on our next trip to Hawke's Bay. …
Cape South is a truly stunning property. It is tucked away in a calm rural setting, yet only 25minutes from Havelock North. The guest rooms and facilities are beautifully appointed and immaculate. Our stay was part of a 'wellness package' that included plenty of delicious vegetarian meals and snacks and a variety of treatments. All staff were extremely friendly and courteous, Cathy and Blair graciously hospitable without being obtrusive. Our every need was meet and exceeded - an truly luxurious and pampered weekend. Thank you to the whole Cape South team for such a memorable stay.
